~My Reason For Our Blog~
"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." — Gordon B. Hinckley

~Decorating The Tree~

I love this tradition, decorating the tree. It is always fun to get out the ornaments and visit the memories created from them. Last year the family allowed me to use white lights, and beautiful balls in wonderful warm colors and shapes. I loved the tree, but there seemed to be something missing, the family ornaments. This year as we were getting everything out, the girls asked if we could do it the old way. As we unwrapped all the old ornaments it was fun to see all the ones we have bought over the years just for the girls and talk about them together. Every year they get a new one, I try to find them one that goes along with what they have been into over the year. This year Raychel has been crazy for owls and Jolene loves squirrels. I think I went into every store and little shop and actually found them the perfect ornaments to represent their year. The owl and the squirrel.
